Traditional Japanese candles known as Warousoku can help to focus mindful attention and appreciation when in meditation, reflection, prayer, practice and when honouring precious time. 

Beautifully engineered from all natural materials. The wax is made from the fruit of the sumac tree and the flame comes from a special wick made from a unique recipe dating back to the 16th century. The Warousoku is a symbol of ancestral wisdom. Using plant-based materials, the wick is made by winding dried rushes around hollow cord of washi (Japanese paper made from natural fibers). 

The hollow core of the wick allows oxygen to be drawn up from the bottom so that the flame consumes more melted wax, thus increasing the combustion power and creating a bright, powerful flame. 

This box set contains the Nanao collection of five different candles, all inspired by the motif of a different plant growing in the Noto Peninsula. Nanao is the name of the city in Japan which these candles are made. 

These candles burn for approximately 120 minutes each. The perfect accompaniment to ceremonies, self care routines, writing, sharing a beautiful meal… whatever it is you are doing, we invite you to turn routine into ritual and habits into intention by adding these candles to your mindful living.

About Takazawa ~

“A flickering flame has always fascinated us. It might evoke images in our mind, or memories from the past, or perhaps feelings about our primitive nature”.      - Takazawa

Established in 1892 in the city of Nanao, Japan, Takazawa have been hand-crafting traditional Japanese candles for over 100 years. 

The last of their kind to remain in this region, Takazawa still start everyday at 5am by lighting fires under the kettles to melt the sumac wax.
